Anyone know who makes the "star" wheels?

Just out of curiosity, anyone know which manufacturer(s) make the stock silver "star" pattern wheels on the MV's? Marchesini?

Did a search here but to no avail.

There's a 'Brembo' -sticker in my star wheels. That's somewhat surprising, Brembo-wheels and Nissin-brakes...

Brembo is cast onto the stars somewhere inside the flange of the spokes themselves(look from the drivechain side of the wheel) if you know what I mean, check out the rear wheel, it's the easiest to see.

I agree, star-shaped wheels are the very essence of the mv beauty.
